A round up of the best names linked with moves to Chelsea over the past week.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho recently suggested that the Blues wouldn’t be making any signings this month, but that hasn’t stopped the Blues from being linked with some world class players in the transfer market.

Here are five of the best names linked with Stamford Bridge moves this week.

Lionel Messi (Barcelona)

A £200 million fee would be required for the Blues to sign the Argentine from Barca, with the attacker growing disillusioned with the methods used by Luis Enrique.

Luis Suarez (Barcelona)

The former Liverpool forward has been linked with a Premier League return. However, it would likely be a case of another massive fee if Chelsea wanted to go after a deal.

Marco Reus (Borussia Dortmund)

Reus has been regularly linked with a move to the Premier League, with Chelsea tipped to try and complete a deal before February 1.

Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid)

Ramos’ recent praise of the Premier League has created speculation that Chelsea could be one of the clubs interested in signing him.

Raphael Varane (Real Madrid)

Chelsea get regularly linked with Varane because of Mourinho’s relationship with the Frenchman when he was in charge at the Bernabeu.
